"FERC: Merchant Coal Operators Reject Perry's Grid Proposal"

"Two of the nation's largest independent power producers are urging the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to reject an Energy Department proposal even though the companies operate coal plants that stand to benefit if the rule is adopted.

Houston-based Dynegy Inc. and Princeton, N.J.-based NRG Energy Inc. individually submitted comments to FERC that expand on the comments from an industry group they belong to, the Electric Power Supply Association.

Together, the generators collectively own more than 13,000 megawatts of coal-fired generation that is poised to be insulated from the harsh realities of cheap shale gas and slack demand that have buffeted wholesale power markets in recent years."
